Inkspirational Challenge 80 and Empty Box Project #16

Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is to use this picture for inspiration:

As you can see, I made a spring bird/eggs card, using a stamp (Woodware??? Lost packet again), and eggs which are vintage photos from Lunagirl. I cut the eggs out and 'distressed' them. The background was made with a Sarah Hurley text stamp and Distress Spray.  I also used several distressing/ crackle stamps. The tickets are stamps that were kindly given to me by my dear teamie, Nonni and I had so far never used - they were in my Empty Box Project box!

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

We would love to see you at Inkspirational. We have a fabulous guest designer,  Bozena, and we'd love you to join in with our challenge.
